Carson City Parks Foundation holds first 2019 Open House
at historic Wungnema House in Mills Park
Sunday, January 27, 2019
Sunday, January 27, 2019, should be a great day to be out and about, so come to the
Foundation for Carson City Parks and Recreation's open house at the Wungnema House, Sunday
afternoon from 2-5 p.m. There is no admission fee, and all are welcome.
The Wungnema House is the small stone house located on the east side of Mills Park
across from Carson High. It was built by a family of skilled Hopi stonemasons shortly
after World War II and served as the family's home until the early 1970s.
Stop by and learn about this remarkable family of Hopi stonemasons; how they came to
live in Carson City; their heritage; their work, and continuing legacy. The family was
responsible not only for this house, but many other distinctive homes and structures in
and around the Carson City area, including a ranch in Washoe Valley and at least one
church at Lake Tahoe.
After the family moved from the house in the early 1970s, the Wungnema House fell into
disrepair and became subject to on-going vandalism until it was finally rescued by Carson
City in the late 1990s, at which time, with a grant from the National Park Service, the
city was able to restore the house to serve as a meeting place for small community groups

FCCPR Welcome to our site. The Foundation is an umbrella organization created
for charitable and educational purposes related to Carson City Parks and Recreation. We
assist the Carson City (Nevada) Parks & Recreation Dept. with projects for improvements
to the City's parks. Currently we are providing financial guidance and assistance to several
non-501(c)(3) organizations that are raising funds to make improvements:
- Disc Golf Group - This group is raising funds to create three 9-hole disc golf
(frisbee golf) courses in the Flint St. area.
- Headstone Project - This group is raising funds to erect headstones on graves in
Lone Mountain Cemetery over graves that are missing headstones.
- Tennis Club Project - This group is raising funds to maintain tennis facilities
in Carson City Parks, particularly Centennial Park.
- Dog Park Support (no webpage yet).
- Junior Ranger Program (no webpage yet).
We are looking for other projects where we can be of assistance. If interested, contact
David Bugli (Dcbugli@aol.com).
